Kylie Minogue spends £8,000 for ex-fiance’s hair transplant

POSTED: 07 February 2017

Kylie Minogue has been in the news in the last week following her sad split with her fiance Joshua Sasse.

Since the split it has emerged that the Australian singer paid for 29-year-old Sasse's £8,000 hair transplant because he was worried about his thinning hair.

You can read more about the Queen of Pop's act of kindness here:

Sasse's is reported to have undergone a Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) transplant similar to Crown Clinic patients Calum Best, I'm A Celebrity star Martin Roberts and Chris Steed from Gogglebox. This is where the donor grafts are removed individually from the scalp. 

Sasse could have also chosen the more traditional method of transplantation -FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation), also know as strip surgery. This is where a strip of donor hair is taken from the scalp to source the donor hair. TV doctor Christian Jessen has undergone two FUT transplants with our surgeon Asim Shahmalak

Kylie's generosity's is not uncommon. A substantial number of patients at Crown Clinic benefit from transplants which are gifts from relatives or loved ones.

A transplant can significantly boost not just a man's self-esteem but his career and his income, too. It is not a surprise that many women are so keen for their men to have a transplant - they can benefit, too, by having a richer, happier and more attractive man at home.

A third of men are losing their hair by time they reach their 30s. It is great time to have a transplant because if you treat the problem earlier it is cheaper (because you need fewer donor grafts). The longer you leave it, the bigger the problem becomes until there is a little a hair transplant surgeon can do to remedy the problem (because there is not enough donor hair on a patient to cover the balding area). The Duke of Cambridge (Prince William) is a good example of this phenomenon: he has left it too late to benefit from a procedure.
